I have an addition I'm doing and there are no interior partitions.There is a large stone fireplace.I was thinking of a wireless t-stat from Danfoss but it's a bit pricy.The HO's at this point are getting worn with the extras.I never installed a stat on an exterior wall.Emitters are HWBB.

    Try a White-rodgers with a remote sensor. Put the sensor any place you want. I have one hanging below and not in the light patteren of a chandler. Numbers are not people comfort numbers, but what does the boiler care?

    How ya bin.

    Slab sensors

    This sounds like a perfect argument for using slab sensors.

    At the Wetheads II conference in Chicago, one person who was all for sensors was Peter Zelasko of Park Supply. He might be able to help you with this. Email me for his contact info if you want it.

    Mr. Cheese...

    Give our T8665A1002 wireless stat a look. It can be anywhere within 200 feet of the receiver W8665A1009. You mount the receiver in the mechanical space, and wire it like any stat R,Rc,W,Y,G. You can get it at any Honeywell distributor, go to http://hbctechlit.honeywell.com for a tech sheet, you or your customer can see what it looks like at www.honeywell.com/yourhome. I think you'll like it.

    Guess I shouldn't have answered this before my first cup of coffee. I missed the part about it being HWBB.

    There are several control types out which mount inside the baseboard housing. We saw a couple of them at REX.

    What I use

    for this application, we use T'static Valves (non electric). You have have dial on the valve (protruding throught cover of BB) or a remote dial & sensor. (I like the Danfoss Ra2000 series)

    Nice thing about non electric is modulating flow control relative to heatload rather than bang-bang zone valves.
